DescriptionThe primarily east facing portion of Elephant Rock is the most popular and most populated section of the formation. With two of the most classic lines at the City, and basically no approach, its no surprise why its difficult to be alone here.
Crack lines, face climbs, and barely featured slabs are the lure. Mostly moderate, the east face of Elephant Rock will not disappoint. Understand this is a heavily traveled area, please respect other visiting climbers by being courteous of your time and theirs.
A traditional feel still holds strong with the east face of Elephant Rock, there are a few fixed anchors, be expected to build your own anchor on top for nearly all routes. Climbers are encouraged to use designated rappel anchors or use the 3rd class scramble/down-climb on the northwest end. A 70 meter rope is strongly advised and very helpful for the taller routes of the east face. A 60 meter rope will get you down from the anchors of Just Say No, but just barely, so watch your ends and expect a little down-climbing if this is all you have.
Morning sun / Afternoon shade.
